Flavor-of-the-month....Chocolate and Red!

Each month http://bakeat350.blogspot.com/ does a Flavor of the month! This month was chocolate, of course one of my favorite things to eat. :D

I had some friends over the other night and had red velvet cake that was in the freezer so i decided to make little individual cakes. I put red chocolate melts drizzled with chocolate ganache. These were the leftovers and boy were they good!

Brown and Pink

This is a cake that i made for a Bridal Shower. The Bride isn't a fan of fondant so i did it covered in chocolate ganache. The top tier is Red Velvet and the bottom is chocolate. The roses are made out of Gumpaste, with ribbon around the edges and pearl Draggies around the two cakes. The roses were dusted with Pink Petal dust as well. I have yet to perfect my smoothing skills with ganache. But i think i did a pretty good job.
